Dinamo Zagreb manager Zlatko Kranjcar has all but confirmed that goalkeeper Eduardo is moving to Chelsea this summer. The stopper is set to be the third choice behind Thibaut Courtois and Asmir Begovic but the manager insists it would be a dream come true for the Portuguese player to travel to such a big club.
The 33-year-old has been playing for Zagreb for the last two years and has been capped 35 times for the Portuguese national team. He was part of the Portugal team that won the European Championships in France earlier this year and a move to one of the biggest teams in the Premier League will do the veteran a whole world of good.
When asked if a transfer to Chelsea was imminent, Kranjcar told 24Sata, "I think so. Eduardo has been offered a great honour to go to a big club like Chelsea. We have to get the security of his presence in the team, since I'm in the club he defends very well. Even impressive. But the situation is such that he goes, so let him all the luck in the big club."
The Blues are still very active in the market and have completed two transfers thus far in the form of N'Golo Kante and Michy Batshuayi. They are in the market for another striker and have earmarked Romelu Lukaku as someone for a prospective transfer. They have also put their sights on a defender and are preparing a world record bid for Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly.
The Senegalese defender has been a rock at the back for Napoli and Antonio Conte is a huge fan of the player who he believes can improve their back line by leaps and bounds. The Blues already have John Terry and Gary Cahill at the back and would like to welcome Kurt Zouma back to the starting line-up after he recovers from injury.
